        Bookplates in the News, A Run of the First Eighty-Six Issues, 1970-1991, with 243 Tipped-In Bookplates [American Society of Bookplate Collectors and Designers]

      Pasadena, Alhambra, CA: American Society of Bookplate Collectors and Designers/Audrey Spencer Arellanes, July 1970 October 1991. Paperback. Near Fine. Straight run of 86 issues. Loose leaf, 21.6 by 27.9 cm, 936 pp. (cumulative pagination), illus. The first three issues have staples or staple-holes and a few pencil marks, the last sheet (p. 935/6) has some creases and yellowing; the remaining issues are fine or near fine. The official newsletter of the ASBC&D, BIN provided information about bookplates, their artists and illustrators, bookplate owners, and bookplate exhibits, as well as including reviews of the literature on bookplates and annotated bibliographical references. Issues were apparently printed as needed, and since there were at times not enough plates to tip-in to the entire run especially in later issues when membership was in the 200s the tipped-in examples may differ from copy to copy. This set, from the collection of Frederick Ruffner, the publisher behind Detroits Gale Research Group, and whose original bookplate is tipped-in on p. 246, is presumably the original from which Gales edition of Bookplates in the News was assembled (see item no. XXXX). Individual copies of this newsletter are quite scarce, and this set includes twenty-six issues not found in the Gale edition. Dated material, such as exchange lists and Society events, are kept to a minimum, making BIN a wonderful bibliographic resource for bookplate collectors especially the artist and collector bios. Issue one, a modest one-page affair, is stapled to a short typed, signed letter from Arellanes to Mr. Ruffner and a mimeographed letter to the ASBC&D membership. BIN quickly grew to ten to sixteen pages per issue. Included in its pages are 243 original tipped-in bookplates (16 are pencil signed), as well as several tipped-in reproductions. Most of the plates were designed by member artists or are personal or institutional plates belonging to members or member libraries or universities. The artists who designed the tipped-in plates include Sara Eugenia Blake, Fred Thompson, Anthony F. Kroll, Philip Reed, Enrico Vannaccini, Kirk Martin, Wojchech Jakubowski, James Hayes, Robert Hill, Pall Bohne, Fridolf Johnson, Werner R. Eilers, Leo Sarkadi, Vytautas Virkau, William Cheney, Ryozo Hirakata, Mitsuomi Furutate, Bela Petry, Paul McPharlin, Henrietta Vepstas, Sarah Chamberlain, Wang Hui-Ming, Marshall Glasier, Maxwell Hamilton Noll, Joy Weygand, Hilda Wiseman, Jurgen Dost, Anatolij Kalashnikow, Simon Brett, Hewitt R.

        "La sieste".

      1970Encre de Chine, signée en bas à droite, (1970), 35.5 x 25.5 cm., encadée. Jean GOURMELIN (Paris 1920 - Meudon 2011) s'initie au dessin dés son plus jeune âge, puis travaille avec l'artiste Charles Portel qui lui enseigne la technique du papier-peint, de la gravure sur bois et du pochoir, avec Nobilis. Il complète sa formation à l'Ecole des Arts Décoratifs et a pour maître Othon Friesz. Avec Max Ingrand, maître verrier, il se passionne pour cet art des vitraux et réalise ceux des Châteaux d'Amboise, de Blois, de la Cathédrale de Saint-Malo ... Grâce à Maximilien Vox il revient à l'édition et l'illustation. Sa rencontre avec l'écrivain de science-fiction Jacques Sternberg détermine le début d'une amitié forte avec Louis Pauwels et sa collaboration à la Revue Planète. Ils lançent le mouvement du "Réalisme fantastique" et, selon l'expression de Sternberg, "Où les compositions de Jean Gourmelin brillaient comme des soleils noirs ... Son inspiration, il la puise dans ses terreurs, ses vertiges, ses gouffres métaphysiques, ses fantasmes, son théâtre d'épouvante et ses décors de rêve". Il anime les "Chroniques" de France-Soir. Des affiches pour le cinéma et le théâtre sortent de ses crayons. De nombreuses expositions saluent son talent dans des galeries et musées ( Centre Culturel de Meudon, Musée Georges Pompidou ...). Hommes, femmes, nus ou à demi-vêtus, sont allongés dans des hamacs. Chacun tient une extrémité du hamac de son voisin. Bel éloge de la sieste à l'équilibre fragile ! Certains dorment ou lisent, d'autres rêvent ou se prélassent...

Allegato all'opera il catalogo della mostra "Maria Mulas 1970-90. Scrittura della luce" alla Galleria Civica d'Arte Moderna Palazzo dei Diamanti e al Padiglione d'Arte Contemporanea Palazzo Massari di Ferrara dal 16 dicembre 1990 al 13 gennaio 1991 dove la foto fu esposta (riprodotta in catalogo a pagina 12). Cm 78x54. Ottimo (Fine). . "Maria Mulas è ricercata e ambita per la libera schiettezza del suo rapporto con l'individuo che ritrae; usa tagli, modi, luci differenti a seconda dei casi, non intendendo ridurre il ritratto a un esercizio di stile; coglie fisionomie ed espressioni, soprattutto capisce subito se il personaggio debba essere fissato in un gesto caratterizzante o sorpreso nel suo dinamismo, se gli giovi un effetto di luce a grandi risalti o l'immersione in un'atmosfera diffusa. E' insomma, se stessa senza prevaricazioni, attena a restituirci non solo figure, bensì personalità" (da un testo di Rossana Bossaglia).

        5 original renderings of the construction of the World Trade Center

      New York and New Jersey, 1970. Watercolor paintings on paper, each about 13 x 20 inches. Matted, with minor wear, numbered on verso. Watercolor paintings on paper, each about 13 x 20 inches. Nicholas Solovioff (1927-1994) was the artist in residence of the Port of New York Authority. He made the most of this opportunity and completed a series of paintings of the early construction of the World Trade Center towers. No doubt these drawings of the early stages of construction -- all from Feb. 1970, were commissioned by the Port Authority and are of unquestionable documentary and artistic value to a legendary architectural project. One depicts the exposed girders of one of the towers under construction, and another appears to depict the antenna. The other three document an unusual obstacle faced by the construction crew in February of 1970. A tugboat strike halted the usual system of bringing girders to the site by boat. After efforts to use helicopters failed, the massive girders were trucked through the Lincoln Tunnel.

        Berlin Suite

      6 original silkscreens, 30 11/16 x 40 3/16 in., by the German printmaker and graphic designer Gerd Winner, depicting the polarized urban landscape of West Berlin in 1970 through architectural and monumental icons of West German industrial wealth and political ambitions (the Victory column; Hotel Metro, modeled on the famous Berliner Dom; and the façade of a metal foundry) and the working-class, proletariat "monuments" of a Kreuzberg backyard, a public urinal, and the Hallesches Tor subway station, each rendered with the photo-based, color-block graphic treatment characteristic of German Pop Art. Prints loose as issued, a few with pinholes at corners, otherwise fine condition. London (Kelpra) 1970. Limited to an edition of 100, signed and numbered by the artist in pencil. The sizable prints offer stylized and affective testimony to the social and cultural conflicts that emerged in West Berlin during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Winner's achievements in the graphic arts are well-known, particularly through his persistent engagement with urbanism in extensive print cycles documenting Berlin, London, and New York. In July 2014 OCLC is unable to locate a North American institutional holding, though the suite appears in the collection of Tate Modern, London.
